I am between summer trips at the moment so my kitchen has seen busier days. Last week I took the boys on our yearly mother-sons adventure (click here for photos and a recap) and next week we head to the Jersey Shore for our annual week at the beach.
I love summer!
Right now I’m in my clean-out-the-fridge mode trying to use up perishables before we leave. The boys wanted burgers for dinner but I wasn’t in the mood. So I used two aging zucchinis and the ground beef I defrosted for them to whip myself up a fun dinner.
The result was a tasty bowl of awesome. Especially after I topped it with a touch of feta and chives from my herb garden.
This idea could work with any ground meat; I just happened to have the beef on hand.
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 2-3 cloves of garlic
- 1 tbsp dried oregano
- 2 medium zucchini, chopped (totaling about 600g)
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
